Have you heard about the news anchor from Wisconsin yet?  Apparently, she was told she was too fat to be a public figure.  I have been reeling for the last half hour in disbelief.

First off, who does this person thing they are, telling someone they are too fat?  They are not her doctor.  They are not her family.  BUTT OUT!  They know nothing about this woman.  In her address, she states she has three kids.  HELL-OO, some people have a hard time loosing their baby weight.  I know I have.  This person had the nerve to send her an email telling her she was too fat.  Ugh.  I can't even write this post with correct grammar or put together logical paragraphs I'm so irritated.

Secondly, I'm irritated that this person thinks all public figures need to be skinny.  The original email says she should do more because she is a role model for young kids.  So frickin' what if she's overweight?  In fact, the world needs more realistic looking public figures!  Not everyone is size 0 or smaller.  The average women's pant size has gone up to 14.  Granted, no, it's not healthy that the average pant size has gone up 3 sizes in the last 15 years, but it has.  Yes, our society needs to be healthier as a whole, but to point that out for a stranger?!?  How dare they.  Ten bucks says he wouldn't say that sh!t to his mother if she were fatter.
